Weekend Getaway

Another amazing weekend has been documented, signed, sealed and delivered. Ross and I dropped the girls off with his parents and we headed out for a couples Texas Hill Country adventure.

First stop, Becker Vineyards outside of the quaint and adorable town of Fredericksburg. If you live in Texas and are of age, schedule a weekend and do a wine tour. Ross and I only had time to make a quick pit stop at Becker, but numerous vineyards line the highway and there are limo/bus tours available. I did it once before and had the best time. It's a perfect weekend staycation.

After a few samplings of vino, we made our way to Kerrville's Y.O. Ranch Hotel and Resort to meet up with some friends for the Texas Big Horn Society Round Up which is a non-profit organization dedicated to returning bighorn sheep to their native ranges in Texas. We kicked off the event at a gorgeous home in the hills with food, fun and a live auction.

Saturday, the boys golfed most of the day and I headed straight to the pool for some sun and R&R. I am not going to lie, I didn't move until it was time to get ready for the evening's event. This kind of day are what dreams are made of.

We ended the weekend at the annual Round Up banquet where we ate like kings and queens, enjoyed time with friends, took home a surprise from the silent auction and did a little late night dancing.

This is what a no-kid kind of weekend looks like....at least in my world. We met some new friends, spent time with old ones and looking forward to next year's banquet at The Stockyards in Fort Worth. 

Stay tuned later this week for a couple of posts detailing what I wore during our stay.

How was you weekend? What were you ladies up to?

Shanna,

Looks like you had a fab weekend Shanna! I am so jealous that you have family to drop off the kids for some adult time. I really need that but had a great weekend getaway in Vegas with the family.
